Painted Books

Over the years I have collected old books, whether I find them at garage sales or the thrift store, I bring them home and usually find a place for them somewhere. I’ve always seen pictures of book covers painted and finally decided to try it out for myself.

These were some of my old books that I decided to paint. I used just regular flat paint that I had leftover from other projects.

I didn’t want the stripes to look perfect so I sanded the paint down with a fine sand paper to give it more of a rustic look.

This is a simple, quick project that can give a little extra life to a set of old books!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of your week!
